Have badges shipped yet?

It's under a month out from the convention. Has anyone received their badges yet? Getting a little anxious.

    East has always shipped pretty late. I just got my badge yesterday in the mail, there's plenty of time, don't worry.

    Myself and a few others have them, but plenty of people don't. I wouldn't worry much,

    Got ours last week. Give it a few more days, then send in an email - I think the email is [email protected]

    We got a pleasant surprise the other day when the Unplugged D20 and stand and the Unplugged blanket showed up. I wasn't expecting them to be shipped; I thought we'd have to pick them up at the show like last year. This dang blanket is so soft, y'all.

    I can't wait to go home for thanksgiving so I can pick mine up from my mother's house. I've been looking forward to that blanket for months!

    I still haven't gotten my badge and I sent an email to pax_questions but haven't gotten a response back yet. Can I pick up a badge on site if worse comes to worse? I still have my receipt

    If you don't have your badge by the end of this week, send another email. It's possible that they are overwhelmed with PAX East registration stuff, and it fell through the cracks. Generally they do not accept people just showing up who should have received their badges in the mail. It needs to be a dialogue where they tell you that they will have one ready for you to do that, if it is necessary.

    Apparently my badge was returned to their office and marked "undelivered" and they asked for a different address. I gave them another one and they said they'll give me tracking details as soon as possible. Anyone know what shipping method they use and how long it takes for your badge to arrive? I know it's only been a day but I haven't received tracking details yet and with Thanksgiving coming up I'll be out of town (and mail gets screwy around holidays) and won't be able to physically check if my badge has arrived until at least the 27th if they don't give me tracking details

    If you chose domestic standard shipping, it is normal first-class mail in a regular letter envelope. But that doesn't normally have tracking, so if they said you would get tracking they may have used another method.

    If you sign up for USPS Informed Delivery, you will get scans of your mail and may be able to look for it that way. I do not know how they handle it if you have your mail held though.

    I thought that PAX used all tracked mail now so they can trace badges being delivered or not.

    So I've gotten my badge already but a buddy of mine didn't order his till like 2 weeks ago ad he's starting to get worried. If the badge doesn't arrive in time would a confirmation work or can he not get in if he doesn't have it?

  • zerzhulzerzhul Registered User, Moderator mod
    If he ordered that recently it may have been after the shipping deadline. He should email [email protected] to verify.

    So this is the first time that we're going to a convention so I apologize if this is a stupid question but why would badges still be up for sale if there's a deadline for shipping? Is there another way that he could get in? You didn't answer that part of my question so I'm curious even more so now if his badge is just not going to show up.

    Badges purchased after the shipping deadline have to be picked up at Will Call. I had to pick up at Will Call for East a couple times; it's not a big deal. It looks like Will Call for Unplugged is available Thursday the 29th from 1:00 PM to 7:00 PM and every day of the show starting at 9:00 AM. As zerzhul said, have your friend email [email protected] to confirm.

    Thanks, passed on that information to him. He's emailing them once he gets out of work and if nothing can be done there guess we'll have to check out the Will Call.
